Valley Connector Program
Fusion Annapolis Valley has just launched the Valley Connector Program. Run by the Valley REN, the program is modeled after the National Connector Program created by the Halifax Partnership.
The Valley Connector Program is designed to help new residents, job seekers, and students build their local professional network by arranging coffee meet-ups with local community and business leaders who are keen to share information, advice, and refer new residents, job seekers, and students to other people in their network. This is a game-changer for anyone in the Valley who is looking to find a new job, learn about the needs of local businesses, or to integrate into the Valley’s business community. Find out more about the Valley Connector Program here: valleyren.ca/connector-program/
